Is the disc a CD or DVD? If it's a DVD, then it requires a different media player. If that's the case, try VLC media player. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ micky2010 April 23, 2010 7:59:28 AM Talktalk Disc is a CD. Is there any way that you could use a restore disc from another pc the get the XP or have you got to buy a XP Disc thanks for information mick aford10 a b D Laptop April 23, 2010 9:47:12 AM If it's a CD, the OS isn't the problem. The problem would have to be with the disc, CD drive, or the media player. In any case, the first thing I would do, is run the scan I mentioned above. http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems By the way, restore discs are tailored to the specific computer they came with. They have drivers on them for that hardware. They aren't full retail copies. So, no, you wouldn't be able to use them. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
